Even with the rear seats in place, there’s enough room in the Superb’s cavernous and well-shaped boot for a number of large suitcases, and the broad boot opening and low lip help with loading. But on the downside, you have to pay extra for a variable-height boot floor – something well worth paying for as it makes for a convenient way to hide small items and it irons out the stepped boot floor you get with the rear seats folded otherwise.
A boot net that allows you to tie down loose items is optional on cheaper versions but standard on SE L Executive trim and above. Nice touches as standard on all models include a number of carrying hooks, a large cubby either side of the main boot area, a 12V charging socket and a rechargeable torch. You also get two plastic dividers with Velcro feet that can be attached anywhere on the boot floor to help wedge a loose item into a corner. The loadbay cover is one-touch release, so you just tap it and it retracts.
An electrically operated bootlid is optional on some models and standard on SE L Executive trim. With it fitted, you can also specify a 'Virtual Pedal', which allows you to open the boot by waving your foot under the rear bumper when you might have your hands full with other items.
